Venice is Open!
As of this right now almost the entire Venice Beach Recreation Center is open for play!
One important detail is that some of the park has fallen into disrepair, so Rec. and Parks and L.A. Sanitation will be doing some maintenance before all the amenities are open for play. But, the great news is now there is nothing stopping the good folks of Venice and beyond from utilizing most of our awesome oceanfront facility.
The basketball rim blockers have been removed, so it’s game on for the hoopers.
The weight pit is still being repaired, a 3 year project that is not yet finished. And the bleachers that face the Pit will not be unfenced as of yet, as crowds might gather there.
The handball courts have been cleared, cleaned, painted, and are open for some 3 wall ball!
One set of rings in the sandbox has been lowered and there is a work order out to get new climbing ropes and lower the other set of rings!
Paddle tennis is open for single and doubles.
The Venice Skate Park has been open, and great for the skaters for handling it themselves.
The Roller Skate Dance Plaza is open!
The beach is open and the County has even put up volleyball nets, so side out, buddy!
The Venice Pier is still closed until around May for repairs.
The outdoor kid’s play stations by the beach are also open!
And here is where to park!
And how about a big middle finger to the virus. Bam!
